I was having curtains made for our new house in Texas. Before you ask, no we do not already have a house. I just guessed. I had the drapes made extra long & extra wide. If they are too long I will just tack them up.
On my first trip I found the lady I was going to have make all my curtains. I don't really know her name, but here is the sign to her shop. She is in the basement. She speaks a little English, I speak a little Korean, but what really worked well for us was Konglish. If you can speak Konglish, you are golden. I designed most of the drapes I had made. She drew designs, I nodded yes or no. She did everything perfectly - just the way I wanted, and they were SO INEXPENSIVE!!
